New York Times columnist Charles Blow called today for a "pause" of Donald Trump's presidency until a full investigation can be completed into allegations of "collusion" between Trump's campaign and Russia. 

Blow called for an immediate halt to all "consequential actions" from the Trump administration amid "existential" questions about Russian interference in the election.

In the column published Monday, Blow wrote:

"The American people must immediately demand a cessation of all consequential actions by this 'president' until we can be assured that Russian efforts to hack our election, in a way that was clearly meant to help him and damage his opponent, did not also include collusion with or coverup by anyone involved in the Trump campaign and now administration.

In any event, we can't keep cruising along as if the unanswered question isn't existential.

Americans must demand at least a momentary respite from -- my preference would be a permanent termination of -- Trump's aggressive agenda to dramatically alter the social, economic and political contours of this country.

We must all demand without equivocation: Pause this presidency!"

Social media users had a strong response for and against Blow's column as the topic became a top trend on Twitter.
